Patrice Metcalf is a soprano who specializes in classical repertoire and opera, but who has also studied musical theater technique. Patrice decided she would take singing more seriously and make it her profession by the time she turned 15, which is when she began meeting with voice teachers. She earned her Bachelor's degree in Music Performance from Westfield State University in 2016 where she took voice lessons with Mary Brown-Bonacci. She currently works at the First Congregational Church in Westfield as their Soprano Soloist and Section Leader for their choir. Along with singing at other churches in Massachusetts and Connecticut, Patrice has performed in operas and musical theater productions, including The Magic Flute, Chicago, and Fiddler on the Roof, to name a few; sung with Westfield State's University Chorus and Chorale for four years; and competed in nationwide vocal competitions, including the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) competition. Patrice also has been playing piano since she was 12, and she was a member of Westfield State's Piano Ensemble for her last two years of college. As suggested earlier, Patrice has an interest in theater and acting. Her experience in that field alone ranges from staged straight plays such as Our Town, to a Lifetime premiered film The Wrong Car (2016). Patrice strives to pass on her musical and theatrical knowledge onto her students to help them become improved artists.
